Goal Was Long Overdue - Wright

Bailey Wright feels his maiden Bristol City goal was “long overdue”.

The centre-half, a January recruit from Preston North End, earned City a point with the home side’s only goal in last night’s 1-1 draw with Norwich City. 

September 2014 was the last time Wright found the back of the net, also a slotted finish inside the penalty area, but chances have been stacking up in recent weeks. 

He hit the bar with a header at Aston Villa and then saw an effort hacked off the line in Saturday’s goalless draw with Burton Albion. 

Speaking on Bristol City Player HD, Wright said: “The goal certainly feels like it’s long overdue! 


Bailey Wright's last goal came in League One in 2014 for Preston North End.


“I’ve actually had a few chances over the last couple of games and it just wouldn’t go in for me. 

“I didn’t really know too much about the goal. I made my run (at the set-piece) and the ball sat nicely for me – I just smashed it and it found the back of the net. 

“I’ve not scored for a while. Goals are definitely something I want to add to my game, especially when I’m going up for set-pieces. 

“It’s just disappointing we didn’t get the win but we take the point and move on. We need to build on that spirit and togetherness now.”
